The PCET programme offers the opportunity to study a highly valued qualification that enables graduates to teach in a range of post-compulsory education settings.
Offered both full and part-time, we have a range of entry options to suit recent graduates, those already in employment, as well as those returning to study following a break.
University-based taught elements focusing on best practice in supporting and developing learning combined with practical teaching experience support you in applying theory to practice and help develop your skills as an aspiring teaching professional.
We offer a number of pathway options dependent on your qualifications on entry as follows:
- Professional Certificate in Education and Training – suitable for those applying who do not hold an undergraduate degree but have extensive experience within their profession and may already be engaging in some teaching and/or training as part of this.
- Professional Graduate Certificate in Education and Training – suitable for those applying who already hold an undergraduate degree and wish to obtain a teaching qualification for the post-16 sector.
- Postgraduate Certificate in Education and Training – suitable for those applying who already hold an undergraduate degree and wish to gain some master’s level credits as part of their studies to put towards an appropriate MA qualification following completion.
Please note that the Postgraduate Certificate is not an enrollable award. Eligible students wishing to undertake it may be able to transfer to this programme following completion of the part 1 modules; this is subject to programme manager agreement.
Applications are made directly through to UWTSD, and are accepted throughout the academic year.
